Bookstock Metro Detroit’s Largest Used Book & Media Sale 4/22-29

If you know my history, you understand my love for books, especially children’s books. As a teacher, reading aloud to my students was a daily ritual, one the children enjoyed just as much. Installing a love of reading in young children is important, and children learn to enjoy reading from the adults who influence their lives. For these reasons, it’s important for teachers, adults, and children to have a library rich with books of all types.

This is where Bookstock comes into play. Bookstock is Metro Detroit’s largest used book and media sale. Held at Laurel Park Place in Livonia, Sunday, April 22 through Sunday, April 29, Bookstock is a book lovers dream!
